Oooh, interesting project.

Curious about the choice of the V4 though, as afaik that was nothing more than a plan and a partially built frame, whereas a v3 was nearly complete (engines and all) and studied quite well. IIRC one of the big museums in the USA is currently restoring the sole surviving one to static display.

Well as far I know the V4 was planed as the first weapon equipped one. I have in my documents a cockpit layout that includes the ammo counter, so well I hope we can get as close to the real thing as it can get.
Although the v4+ never flew, in basic we can get super close to a real v4+ what it would have been.
I need to get in contact with some professionals of that time soon too, so lets see what support we can get the upcoming year for this project.
Since we are stuck in 2 other projects, which I hope will be released in the near future, WHICH IS NOT DEFINED YET, it is hard to say when this bird will eventually go into the first real testflights in this sim. I personally hope that this will happen during 2015, but we will see.

cheers

I love the Ho-229, ever since my Medal of Honour Frontline days.
I say good luck to you and good luck with your other projects.

Nope, there were only three prototypes or so. Never used in combat.
